BIC Group (meaning Société BIC and its affiliated companies and subsidiaries, and referred to herein as “BIC” or “We”) is committed to protecting your online privacy when visiting our website (the “Site”).  The purpose of this privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice”) is to inform you about the types of information we gather about you when you visit the Site, how we use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of the information.

The Site does not require personal information from visitors in order to gain access to any part of our Site. With the exception of Site usage information and cookies, no personal information is automatically collected from visitors to the Site. Any other personal information you may provide will be on a voluntary basis.

You may at any time withdraw or change your consent to our use or disclosure of your personal information, or request that we delete it from BIC’s files, subject to legal and contractual restrictions. However, if you do not provide personal information required for us to supply you with a service offered on the Site, we may not be able to provide that service to you.


When visiting the Site, we may collect data from you, including your use of the Site, and the computer used by you to access the Site.

We may collect data you provide directly to us, such as when you subscribe to a newsletter via the “Connect with BIC” page, upload a picture to the BIC Gallery via the “We love BIC” form, contact BIC via the “Contact Us” section, or otherwise communicate with us.
This data may include: title, name, username, email, postal address, and other information you choose to provide.

• The data you provide to us via the “Connect with BIC” page will be used by BIC and/or an agency working on BIC’s behalf to send you the information you chose to receive. Your personal data will only be used to answer to your request. It is not our intent to use your personal data for any other purpose. Each email received will include an unsubscribe option which will result in deleting your personal data within a reasonable amount of time. 
• The data you provide to us via the “We love BIC” form will be used by BIC and/or an agency working on BIC’s behalf to contact you in case we are interested by or have questions about the picture you uploaded. It is not our intent to use your personal data for any other purpose.
• The data you provide to us via the “Contact Us” page will be used by BIC and/or an agency working on BIC’s behalf to respond to your comments, questions or requests for information by you. Aside from a reply to an e-mail received by us, it is not our intent to contact you unless you request particular information. Although we will retain your contact information in our database, we will use it only to respond to your requests.

We may also use your personal information for other purposes which are disclosed to you and to which you consent, or for such other purposes as permitted or required by applicable law.

We may use third-party analytic tools to analyze user behavior which allows us to measure consumer interest in the various areas of our Site for product and Site development purposes.  These third party analytic tools give us aggregated and collected anonymized information such as how the site was accessed and how long visitors stayed.  This information is used for our own internal purposes to improve the content of this Site, to enhance users’ experience when visiting our Site, and to customize the content and/or layout of our pages.  All information of user behavior described herein will be recorded on a group basis, and such analysis may be shared with our Site development consultants.  This information is aggregated and not personally identifiable. 


The Site may contain links to other websites. BIC has no control over and assumes no responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of these websites. You should review the privacy policies of each website you visit. 


The Site may integrate third party platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter “like” and “share” function.  We can collect technical information using cookies and other technologies on our own behalf and through the use of third-party platforms, such as those named in this paragraph.  Technical information may include your IP address, browsing path, operating system, and other information.  When you interact with the third party platforms, such as using the Facebook “like” or “share” feature, that platform may record your interaction with the Site.  The third-party platforms have their own privacy policies, which govern the use of any personal or non-personal information they collect.  


Like many other commercial sites, our Site may utilize a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how our Site is used. Please see our Cookie Notice  for details.  


We do not track your activity on any other website, but ours. We do not use information obtained from this Site to participate in activities commonly known as behavioral advertising and we, by default, do not track your activity on any other site.   Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, and our website is able to respond to some, but not all of those signals.


Except as specified herein or permitted or required by applicable law, we do not share personal information about you with any third party without your permission and we do not allow third parties to collect personally identifiable information from users on this Site.  This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating the Site, conducting our business or serving you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information secure and confidential upon Confidentiality agreements signed with BIC. Third party providers maintain the information they need to perform their designated functions and we do not authorize such parties to use or disclose personal information for their own marketing or other purposes. 

We may release your personal information when release is permitted by or appropriate to comply with the law (for example, in response to a legally valid inquiry or order or otherwise required or permitted by applicable law), to enforce our Site policies, to exercise or defend legal claims or to protect ours or other’s rights, property, or safety.  However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

If we become involved in a transaction to sell all or parts of our business or assets or merge with another business, as personal information may be part of such transactions, we may, after informing you, use or disclose such information to the other parties involved in the transaction.
Please note that your personal information may be maintained and processed by service providers located in foreign jurisdictions, whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. 


We have policies and procedures in place to protect your personal information from loss, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure.  In addition, we have implemented BIC Group Technical and Organizational measures including security software, passwords and firewalls intended to prevent unauthorized computer access.  No claim is made as to the impenetrability of the system under unusual circumstance or its resilience to future attacks. 


Your personal information is stored at secure locations and on servers located in the United States.  We or our service providers may use servers also located in the United States for back up and emergency storage of this Site. Any electronic records generated by us or our service providers during the course of your interactions with the Site may be maintained on those servers.  As such, your personal information may be disclosed, processed and stored outside your country of residence, and therefore may be available to government authorities under lawful orders and laws applicable where the information is stored. You may address questions about the privacy policies and practices relating to handling of your personal information by contacting us by the method set out below.  We retain your personal information as long as is required for the purposes identified when you provided the personal information and for any new purposes identified and consented to by you, and for an appropriate time thereafter. 


We do not knowingly collect or store any personal information from or market to children under 13 or as defined by local legal requirements.
Should we decide otherwise, we will obtain consent from a legal representative before we collect personal information of children where it is required by applicable laws and regulations (the age at which consent from a legal representative is necessary varies from country to country).


Under certain circumstances, you have rights under pertinent data protection laws in relation to your personal data. BIC is committed to respect your rights and will act promptly and in accordance with any applicable law, rule or regulation relating to the processing of your personal data.

This section describes your privacy rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

If BIC has disclosed the relevant personal data to any third parties, we will take reasonable steps to inform those third parties of the rectification where possible.


Right to have personal data erased: you have the right, in certain circumstances, to request that your personal data held by BIC is erased. This is also known as the right to be forgotten. This is not an unconditional right to have all personal data deleted. BIC will consider each request in accordance with the requirements of any laws related to the processing of your personal data.

Right to restrict processing of personal data: you have the right to avoid the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. This right arises if you are disputing the accuracy of data, if you have raised an objection to processing, if processing of personal data is unlawful and you oppose erasure and request restriction instead or if the personal data is no longer required by BIC but you require the personal data to be retained to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim.

Right to object: in certain circumstances, you have the right to object to processing being carried out by BIC if (i) data is processed based on legitimate interests or for the performance of a task in the public interest (including profiling), (ii) data is used for direct marketing purposes, or (iii) if data is processed for scientific or historical research or statistical purposes. You will be informed that you have a right to object at the point of data collection and the right to object will be explicitly highlighted and be presented clearly and separately from any other information.

Right not to be subject to automated decisions: where the automated decision produces a legal effect or a similar effect, you have the right not to be subject to a decision which is based on automated processing only.

You can exercise your rights by the means set out below.
